10/Mar 3.2 - MoDaCo Custom ROM for GSM Hero (now with online kitchen)

Recommended Posts

if you type/paste the link manually into the address bar and press enter it won't work. that is the closest i could replicate your problem. clicking the link directly, save link as, open in new tab all works fine for me on firefox.

and if you are using some sort of download manager, try without that.

moinmoin,

with mcr 3.1 it was possible to forbid the usage of 3G networking via Menu -> Settings -> Wireless Controls -> Mobile network settings -> Use only 2G networks for saving energy. with mcr 3.2 this switch is gone. So for now i will stay at 3.1 as with constantly enabled 3G-networking my battery drains much faster. (and i don't want to take way like *#*#INFO#*#* ..)

some other ideas? why is this switch gone? paul?

cheers, Morlac

I have read that this is because 3.2 is based on the .73 build which is customized for 3 UK that don't need that switch.

there is nothing wrong with doing it by *#*#4636#*#* when it is set to gsm only and there is no switch because it is a 3uk rom it has been answered many times before in this thread

This latest rom is impressive! After 1,5 days, my battery is still on 68%! It´s been mostly idle, but I still think it´s surprisingly good. I usually need to charge my phone every night.

Keep up the good work :)

Hi Paul. I flashed this rom to my hero and everything was working fine. But then my gps wasn't working so i rebooted with gps enabled. It didn't do the trick- in fact it's completely ruined my phone- lost my apps, won't read my sd card (it seems to have disabled the slot!), disabled sense, i've lost google maps and generally won't do anything. I've tried restoring a previous nandroid from before i flashed, but i keep getting a sdcard not mounted- type error. Any suggestions?

Edit:i've got several sdcards and i've tried them all- none are recognised.

Will i need to downgrade/ goldcard back to stock ROM and re-root, then try a different MCR ROM?

Have you tried a different sd card? It sounds like maybe that's the problem rather than MCR 3.2. Worth a try if you have another one available.

Have you tried the app SDrescan (free in the Marketplace)? That might help with the music issue.

Hi,

I searched for 'APN' and predictably there were toooo many results to sort through.

So, when Paul writes 'Added huge APN list', how do i access this??

Can I choose, or is it automatic?

Cheers

If you have a terminal emulator installed on your device, you can do it from there.

Alternatively, if you have adb installed on your PC, from a command prompt try:

adb shell

/system/bin/removedropbear.sh

exit

[Edit: obviously while your device is connected to the PC over usb & with the USB debug option enabled in the device - the same way you'd have it connected when flashing ROMs etc]

Hi,

I have upgraded to the MCR 3.2 but like some other persons I can't use the GPS. I've tried to reboot with the GPS On but it don't work too...

So I have wiped everything, dl again the ROM, Flash again, and no GPS too. Reboot = same...

What I have to do next?

Thanks

Re-flash the Radio ROM, and your GPS would work just fine.

That would work but there's no need for the remount as the removedropbear.sh script remounts /system as read/write itself.

Ever since I upgraded to 3.2 and the latest radio (63.18.55.06JU_6.35.09.26), the battery is heating up a lot. Previously it used to be around 28-32 deg in range. Now the normal range is 35-38 deg. While charging it crosses 40+ as well. Are other people also experiencing the same? I am a bit worried about this. I upgraded the ROM and radio in quick succession, so no way of knowing which one is causing the trouble.

BTW, I am using Spare Parts to see the temperature.

Any help will be appreciated.

well well well,

I have flashed the radio (update-hero-radio-63.18.55.06JU_6.35.09.26-signed.zip), try to reboot -> Icon with the package and the arrow to the phone...

Reboot, nothing...

Hard-reset, nothing...

Vol - + start, nothing...

<feel bad>

Home + start, no recovery...

<arghhh....>

Click on all buttons with stress, recovery start...

<feel better>

Re dl the radio, upload to the device, flash again.

Same problems...

Click again on all the buttons -> recovery

Flash all MCR3.2 again.

It starts :)

Reboot and try the GPS,

It works...

Yeaaaahhhhh!!! Thanks dudes!!!!

[edit] changes the ... for !!! [/edit]
